Maria kindly allowed me to publish this photo in the interest of identifying the culprits. The very handsome bloke sitting on the ground at left is the spitting image of my yet unborn father. His father, George Spiro Tsicalas, was supposedly on the Tablelands in 1916, aged 36, and, according to family folklore, didn’t come back to the Northern Rivers until 1917. But…you never know?
Known to be in Lismore in 1916 were:
Peter Emmanuel and Kalliopi (nee Andronicos) Comino (aged 46 ...

Foto Panaretos (nee Firopoulos). Was my Uncle Alex Panaretos's wife. They had one son, Theordore A. Panaretos, seen in other pictures in this website as a soldier in WW II. Not sure what village she was from in Kythera, but part of the Firopoulos clan.
My mother, Helen (nee Panaretos), and father Nicholas Gavriles in front of their Model A Ford 1929. Parked next to our restaurant "The Atlas Cafe", Highland Park, Michigan. The restaurant was 2 blocks away from the original Ford Model T plant where mass production originated
My mother Helen, far right, and her siblings, while living in Smyrna. There were several other brothers, not in the picture.
Not sure as to the last names of the men on the left. I think the man in the middle is Kassimatis. He was responsible for building the hospital over in Logothetianica by having fund-raising events in various US cities here in the 50's to raise money for the hospital. The man on the far right is my Uncle Theodore D. Gavrilys. This is in front of the Ship-A-Hoy restaurant in New York. Maybe someone else is more familiar?
Having fought in France during WW I in the US Army, my uncle Theodore Gavrilys re-enlisted in the Army for WW II and was a seargent. This time he didn't have to go over to Europe. He was stationed in the States in charge of armaments. Always proud to have served his adopted country he always managed to attend the VFW functions in the US in his uniform.
